A Zillow survey finds nearly 80 percent of buyers (79%) say they're more likely to view a home if the listing includes a floor plan they like, and more than 70 percent of buyers (71%) say a dynamic floor plan would help them determine whether the home is right for them.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends Report 2022 shows that online presence is vitally important. Buyers think floor plans are very important, right behind photos and detailed property information.
Feel free to take a minute to look at the National Association of Realtors’ 2022 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends.
Over 97% of those surveyed view floor plans as useful or very useful. However, it is not just the NAR survey report that claims the importance of floor plans. According to Zillow, a floor plan is the second most important feature on a listing and correlates highly with capturing potential leads.
Our basic floor plan is a simple map of your home that shows each room, including garages and additional attached enclosed spaces. We provide our clients with three versions of floor plans. Each version includes a plan with room dimensions and one without. We can deliver these as a jpg, png or SVG image format, but our standard method is via jpg images.
For clients requiring a GLA (Gross Living Area) plan, we provide you with an Upgrade Option to select that add-on feature. You can learn more about about GLA plans by clicking the following links: GLA-Gross Living Area FAQ and Appraisal FAQ. Here are samples of GLA Floor Plan Packages.
We create floor plans using a revolutionary video capturing software that is designed to work with an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) data collection system. Video imaging and laser scanning information is converted into point cloud data points and then converted into AI-based geometry reconstructions and creates a beautiful 2D digital floor plan. The floor plan is then reviewed and approved by a licensed architect before being released. (If you want to learn more then click this link: https://www.cubi.casa/from-video-to-a-point-cloud
Homebuyers begin their journey online. They begin their search by entering targeted zip codes, price ranges, estimated square footage needs, and the desired number of bedrooms and bathrooms. You, as a Realtor, have no control over that criteria. What you do have control of is how well your listing stands out when compared to the others that appear in the search results. The most important media criteria that homebuyers want to see are property photos, floor plans and videos.
Photos show how the seller lives in the home. A floor plan shows how the buyer could live in it! The best way to gather information about room layout, how rooms fit in relation to other rooms and how to understand the flow of the property is a floor plan. Even though photos are good visual assets, they don’t provide context; floor plans give structure to photos in a listing. In other words, floor plans reveal what photographs often do not: the proportions of rooms, the number of rooms and the flow of the home.
Most buyers view multiple properties in a day. The challenge for the real estate agent is to make their listing more memorable than others. Incorporating a floor plan into your listing can help make it more memorable. Equipped with a floor plan, prospective buyers can easily remember the home’s layout and the home itself. The little details help you sell a home, and floor plans are one of the most powerful “little details” you can use.
Floor plans are now automatically included in ALL of our Packages.
Some real estate agents may see floor plans as not “necessary”. Technically, they are right. Floor plans aren’t “necessary”. But neither are real estate photos – and you won’t see many listings without those! Buyers love floor plans. Floor plans help sell properties and they will make your listing stand out from other property listings.

These plans are also bundled into one "Print Ready" PDF file as well.
These floor plans are referred to as "Marketing Floor Plans" and do not include the total square footage of a home. Those measurements are calculated measuring the exterior of the home. CubiCasa floor plans are based upon measurements on the interior of rooms, hallways, closets, etc. These measurements represent the interior living area of the property and not the total square footage.
Our standard delivery does not include the square footage, but can be added by request. Also, our standard floor plan is available in many options. The slideshow to the left shows the most requested styles. However, the image below indicates the flexibility we have in creating the perfect floor plan for you.
